Donald Trump’s wife Melania made a splash on social media while greeting Poland’s first couple, Andrzej Duda and Agata Kornhauser-Duda, bare-legged in a double breasted wool coat, paired with navy satin heels, despite the high temperatures and humidity in Washington, DC.
After the July incident when Melania was mocked for opting for a yellow Gucci coat in Finland, where her husband met Russian President Vladimir Putin, despite the hot weather, her devotion to this particular type of clothing, which turned out to be yet another piece by the posh Italian designer worth $3,980, has puzzled many Twitter users. The question floated from one Tweet to another: Why is it always coats?
Why is Melania Trump always wearing coats?— Tosia (@SpryWit) 19 сентября 2018 г.
Another coat? What is your obsession with coats. And with today’s heat and humidity you wear wool? So weird— ChristineG (@Kryssie63) 18 сентября 2018 г.
The “escape” jokes couldn’t be avoided either.
Why do you always wear coats?— Judi Anderson (@waningestrogen) 19 сентября 2018 г.
Do you think some foreign diplomat is going to assist your escape?
Also, hi, @StephGrisham45
Some have suggested that the first lady is being naughty…
I think she was naked under the coat. Naughty girl.— Cynthia Schlie (@CynthiaSchlie) 18 сентября 2018 г.
And mock her hostess skills.
However, some slammed the critics and comedians for knowing nothing about style and applauded Melania’s choice.

Beside the buzz around her outfit on the margins of the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki, the first lady was at the center of another “coat controversy” this summer, after she wore a designer khaki jacket with a print on the back reading: "I really don't care, do u?" as she departed to visit a migrant child center in Texas. After media and social networks exploded in outrage about the alleged "hidden message," her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham dismissed all allegations, saying it was just a piece of clothing.
The US president’s wife has also been roasted for not getting dirty enough in the White House Kitchen Garden during a traditional vegetable harvesting session with schoolchildren, when she was photographed wearing a designer shirt, spotless blue-and-white Converse sneakers, and immaculate red gloves.
